1Table event brings Chattanoogans together

The NewsChannel 9 SkyCam took a look at the 1Table event from above as hundreds of people came together to share a meal and share some friendship.

The 1Table event brought community members together to share a meal.

The event hosted hundreds of people for free food and drink, a photobooth where you get your picture taken with a stranger, and a wall of handwritten messages saying what you are thankful for.

"That food was delicious. It really was," said Quaterrius Robinson. Robinson said he appreciates the event because was able to meet people who he says his path would never have crossed with.

"I think its great because you see people from all these diverse communities."

Greg Martin is new to Chattanooga. Even though he just moved here, he was looking forward to the event when he was a California resident.

He says that he saw a billboard advertising the event when he came to Chattanooga to house hunt last year.

"This is one of he reasons that I would wanna move to a community for this."

Martin says, "It just warms my heart to be a part of something like this."
